Prison Break is back with a bang with its 5th season after a gap of almost 9 years. The previous season ended with the death of the main character Michael Scofield and the show was never supposed to come back with any new season. But here we are reviewing season 5 for you.
This season revolves around the resurrection of Michael Scofield, played by Wentworth Miller. The story kicks off with T-Bag, played by Robert Knepper, when he gets a clue about Michael being alive which he then passes on to Lincoln, played by Dominic Purcell. Now, Lincoln and Sara,played by Sarah Wayne, decide to find out the truth and do whatever it takes to bring Michael back. This time the story takes us to Yemen which obviously involves a prison break. But it is more complex and difficult. It is surprising to see that the character of Lincoln is given more screen time and we see Dominic’s best performance till date.
The magic of Prison Break was keeping you hooked and wondering, “how will they get out of this?” Well, this season is expected to deliver exactly the same. If you fell off the Prison Break train around season 3 or 4 don’t worry, the show is still fairly accessible. There’s a quick recap at the start that fills you in on all you need to know.
Season 5 has all the elements that made Prison Break a hit and it finally takes the show back to its roots, which last two seasons had failed to do.
